“Rate the Rolls”… the results!

Yesterday, I posted the Mom Goes Green family opinion for our “Rate the Rolls” Challenge.  We tried two brands of 100% recycled content toilet paper (bath tissue!).  One was White Cloud’s GreenEarth, the other was the leading competitor, but we didn’t know which one was which. Today we got the results…

WC rate the rollzSo, did we pick GreenEarth? Drumroll, pleeeeze… we did! They’ve won us over… and, ironically the other brand was Seventh Generation and that is the brand that my husband nixed when I tried to make the first switcheroo!  Fortunately I have his blessing to begin buying GreenEarth (woohoo!) and buying recycled is really important to me.  In fact, if every U.S. household replaced just one 500-sheet roll of regular TP with one recycled roll, it would save nearly 423,900 trees annually. Now, that’s a big deal!

I also now know that while both brands are 100% recycled, White Cloud GreenEarth is always made from 100% post consumer fibers, while Seventh Generation only promises 80% post consumer.  Another big bonus in my book!

I hope you’ll take the challenge too and just give it a try.  For now, GreenEarth is available exclusively at Walmart, and you can save some “green” by downloading the coupon below!

If you give it a try, let me know what YOU think.  Now click, print, buy and… well, you can handle the rest of it!

23 Eco-Friendly Ways To Save Money While You Save The Planet

"Going green" has always been a part of my daily life. It began, as a little girl, when I helped my mom gather the recyclables and deliver them to a recycling center. It continues today, as a mom myself, when I teach my own children those same responsible virtues.

There are so many more facets of going green in the modern day, and the definition of the term reaches far beyond simple recycling. But going green isn't just about installing solar panels on your rooftop... it's about all the little choices that make the biggest difference. From food choices, to cleaning your home, to saving money on your monthly utility bills and consumption; the choices are vast.

However, there is a popular misconception that "going green" will "cost you green." We're inundated with green products, eco-friendly formulas, organics and mountains of options, making it seem that going green is an investment rather than an opportunity.

Well, I'm here to help dispel that myth and actually show you all of the ways you can live green, keep your family healthy, and benefit the environment without sacrificing anything, including your money.

When you make wise choices to gain the most benefit, relieve the burden on the environment, and save money to use elsewhere, everyone wins. You've already taken the first step. You've come here for help to make it happen.

Put these tips into action, and you will soon find that you can "save green" while you "go green"!

  1. Hi Doreen! Great reviews on toilet paper! I know it is a little late in the game, however, I wanted to bring up the fact that there are tree-free alternatives that may be even greener. Bum Boosa Bamboo Bathroom Tissue is 100% bamboo made by the thermo-mechanical method of pulping paper. It is elemental chlorine free, 3 ply, and very smooth. It comes in a 100% recycled cardboard box rather than the typical plastic package. I developed this t.p. after reading a reserach study out of Dresden University last year that found a connection between BPAs in our ground water to recycled content bathroom tissue. BPAs are showing up in tap water because recycled paper contains elements of plastic due to the recycling process. This is largely due to the thermal glossy paper (think credit card receipts) not being separated out before thrown into the vat. This is okay for all other recycled paper purposes, but not for tissue that will eventually be flushed down the toilet! This is such a new finding, not many people know about it. Please consider bamboo as a sustainable and renewable alternative in tissue, as it does not need to be recycled because of how incredibly FAST it grows.
